Sizzling Saturday

These weekends have been so perfect lately; I'm going to be very disappointed when the temperature drops back down!
Since we were trying to spend a lot of time outside, I asked the kids about just eating lunch outside. AC was all for it, but Colby was not a fan of fighting "bugs" off his food! Anyway, I brought the playroom table outside and made sandwiches for was sooo nice!

Just like at the beach when I could eat everything in sight, Colby was obviously feeling the same way while he was outside! For lunch, he ate two cheese sandwiches, a heaping of chips, two chocolate chip cookies, and three juice boxes! He is a very large eater, actually, when he can eat what he likes; he wants to eat all the time, particularly after his shower at night!

HOWEVER, Aubree was much too busy socializing with the dog or picking up things on the ground to concentrate fully on eating!! I must have said, "no playing until you eat" a dozen times!!!

Three year visit

Since Aubree and I had a holiday on Friday, we both took a trip to Savannah for appointments. One of the visits was her three-year check-up with the pediatrician.

She wore the blue gown just like we wear when we go for visits and, all of a sudden, I got a glimpse at an older Aubree!!! :( On the other hand, I am so thankful for a healthy toddler! I had no concerns to share (except nail biting and very active....heehee). She weighed 33 pounds and was 38 1/2 inches which put her in the 75th percentile for both. She was doing everything on the checklist and Aubree correctly answered all the questions the doctor had for her!
On the way, Aubree asked if she was getting a shot, and I told her there wasn't a shot bec this age was supposed to be the one year we wouldn't have one. However, a new shot has been added so she wasn't too terribly excited about a shot in the leg and "finger"...and topping if off with two unwelcome band-aids....yikes!

Afterwards, we used our free Jr. Frosty coupon at Wendy's and made her a happy camper!!!

Where we are at three years of age:

*33 pounds & 38 1/2 inches

*Size 3T pants, 4T shirt, 4T dress

*Size 8 shoe

*Very independent/head strong

*Loves Colby, baby dolls, playing ball, her kitchen, outside, and air hockey

*No dancing in her future....T-ball soon

*Going to bed is still not fun...she likes to stall and scream our names a dozen times.

*Can dress herself, likes to help bathe, brush her teeth...not night time trained yet.

*Follows me everywhere in the house....calls me if she "loses" me and tells me I'm her best friend :)

Colby's 7th birthday party

I won't even bother with excuses.....I finally got them posted :)
Colby had his 7th birthday at the Clubhouse in Statesboro last Saturday. It was our first trip, actually, and it was greeeeat! So much fun and very practical for a winter party.

The birthday cake was supplied by them, and it was pretty good. You would really love it if you are a fan of icing :)
The kids played mini bowling while we waited for everyone to arrive

Then, it was off to laser tag, and the boys (and girls) could hardly wait!!! With all the anxiousness, I think they missed a few of the instructions along the way :)

Bailey and Dawson

He was MUCH more excited than he appears :)

After a round of laser tag, we went over and played a game of bowling. We had the party room with the bowling alley inside and that was great!!! It was nice to keep everyone in the same room while we bowled, ate, and opened presents.....made it easier to keep up with everyone.

Happy Birthday dear Colby.....Happy Birthday to you!!!

Later that afternoon, Colby got his birthday present....a new USED four-wheeler :)

And Aubree got....outta there! :) She is not a fan of loud noises! She likes to BE loud not listen to loud!!!

It was a great birthday party and a long day!!! I'm glad both kids enjoyed their birthdays, but I'm glad I have a year long break! :)
